28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

I open with e4 as white and respond to e4 with e5, and d4 with d5.

Favorite players are Magnus Carlsen and Hou Yifan.

dumbgai: Is Swiercz the same name as Schwartz/Schwarz/Swartz?

dumbgai: 21. Ra1 is a sign that white is in bad trouble. Just look at it: the rook goes from fighting for a useful open file, to the corner where it's blocked in by its own pawn. All this because of white's back rank weakness and the domination of the black heavy pieces down the open files.

dumbgai: But many other players didn't survive. White has more pieces on the kingside than black, so black understandably wants to trade queens to make her king safer.

dumbgai: Meier must be kicking himself. It was a complicated game, but he had the better of it against Caruana for most of the game.

dumbgai: Wang is pressing Harikrishna. His d- and e-pawns are advanced and looking very dangerous.
   Jun-26-15 A Hambleton vs D Haessel, 2015
dumbgai: White pushed his luck too far. Should have taken the draw that he had in hand starting from about move 48.

dumbgai: Go away, troll. Welcome to my ignore list.

dumbgai: 7...g6? was already bad, but 9...g5?? destroyed any chance black had of fighting back.
   Jun-22-15 J L Hammer vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: <Catholic Bishop> That's some pretty funny logic. A weak 1400 player would only manage to draw with 74. f5??, whereas the 2677-rated Hammer, with all his GM knowledge, was able to see deeper and find the winning 74. Kc6!! Apparently some GMs are so strong that they can win by ...
   Jun-20-15 I Nepomniachtchi vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Was Yangyi short on time? Maybe Nepo tried to move fast to exploit his opponent's time trouble but ended up blundering himself. It certainly looks like the type of position that would warrant spending a lot of time thinking.
